The Sound of Silence

Unfortunately in Blogland the sound of silence means only a few things;

1.) You're on vacation and you are a bad blogger because you don't "plan ahead"
2.) You are in the works of selling your house/moving (which seems like everyone is lately)
3.) You're pregnant and can not muster any energy for projects.

Well guess what?

It looks like as soon as we said, "screw it- we're gunna make a nursery anyway" it finally happened.

And, while pregnancy announcement posts can be fun and exciting- since Nate and I did have quite the journey to get to this point- I do feel that twinge of sorrow for all of our friends, readers, and so on that are struggling with infertility issues, PCOS, endometriosis or any other health issue that may prevent them from having children. We send you guys all the hugs in the world.

We are very thankful that we were able to conceive without having to go through IVF or shots or anything like that. Though, after 18 months of doctors appointments and me finally saying that I didn't want to go to the doctor anymore it seems like I'll be going a lot more.

We are super excited to announce "Wookie" to you guys. It is actually still quite early (9 weeks today!)- but since Nate and I couldn't stand to keep it a secret most of the world knows anyway so we thought we'd just go for it and tell everyone.

We were shocked that we found out so early too. I swear- those early detection tests I've been wasting money on for so long seem to actually pick stuff up! We found out we were pregnant only about 2 weeks into it. So, needless to say I've been so paranoid it's not even funny. Like checking for blood every time I pee. (Oh, too much?)

But, at the end of the day, there is so much rejoicing in this kingdom and we are enjoying the experience and are trying to not live in too much fear. Though, we did take our "baby announcement" pictures the same time we did our 3rd anniversary pictures just in case something happened so we'd have a picture with the baby.

I'll go into more details on finding out, how I told Nate, where we are in life, and so forth this week. I hope you guys are ready- because we sure as hell are!

Let the games begin!

  4. Oh, Emma! So very, very happy for you. I know the paranoia. And the giddy joy. It always makes me so happy when someone who's struggled with infertility finally gets a positive test result. Looking forward to living vicariously through your blog posts, whenever you're able to get them written. :-)
